Soil Not Oil : Climate Change, Peak Oil, and Food Insecurity
by Vandana Shiva

Vandana Shiva is a world-renowned environmental thinker and campaigner, as well as a former physicist, a feminist and a philosopher. Vandana is the winner of the 2010 Sydney Peace Prize and in 1993, the Alternative Nobel Peace Prize (the Right Livelihood Award).

In Soil Not Oil Vandana Shiva brilliantly reveals what connects humanity's most urgent crises—food insecurity, peak oil, and climate change—and why any attempt to solve one without addressing the others will get us nowhere. Condemning industrial biofuels and agriculture as recipes for ecological and economic disaster, Shiva champions the small independent farm instead. What we need most in a time of changing climates and millions hungry, she argues, are sustainable, biologically diverse farms that are more resistant to disease, drought, and flood.
